If you want a setting like \override Lyrics.BlaBlaBla #'something = #something
to apply to a specific Lyrics context, the setting has to be done within
that context. For example, you can say
\new Lyrics \lyricsto B { \override Lyrics.VerticalAxisGroup #'minimum-Y-extent = #'(-3 . 0) \textBeins }

You can also use the \with construct:

\new Lyrics \with{ \override Lyrics.VerticalAxisGroup #'minimum-Y-extent = #'(-3 . 0) } \lyricsto B \textBeins

I hope you have read the Learning Manual included in the documentation for LilyPond version 2.11, which tries to explain all these things in a better way than in earlier versions of the manual.


Quoting Alan Fabian <address@hidden>:


thank you, I did reading the manual at that point several times already.
The problem is, that when I give the following in the 5th voice, the vertical space is made between the lyrics of the first voice!?
(see attached pdf)
% the 5th voice comes here:
                \new Staff \new Voice = "B" \voiceB
                \once \override Lyrics.VerticalAxisGroup #'minimum-Y-extent =  
#'(-3 . 0)
                \new Lyrics \lyricsto B \textBeins
                \new Lyrics \lyricsto B \textBzwei

But what I want is a bit of space between the 5th staff and the first lyrics, as shown in that little piece of code above. I am shure the solution is easy, but I don't get it.
